Green Up Day 2013 at Twin City Subaru Benefits Berlin Elementary School

Green Up Day 2013 at Twin City Subaru

An official Green Up Day sponsor, Twin City Subaru is Central Vermont's designated Green Up Day bag pick-up and drop-off site. And in 2013, for the first time, we invited Vermonters to make a double difference on Green Up Day.

When six 5th graders from Berlin Elementary School asked us for help with their new playground fundraiser, we decided to turn Green Up Day trash into cash, and make a donation for every pound collected and brought to the dealership!

Watch the event video to get the full scoop:

We are so proud of our community for helping us to reach our goal of 400 bags collected! Thanks to everyone who helped collect bottles, green up Vermont, and spread the word about Cash for Trash, our event was a win-win for the environment and for the kids who deserve the opportunity to be outside enjoying it.

The Playground Fundraiser at Berlin Elementary School

All trash collected on Green Up Day 2013 counted as cash for Twin City Subaru's donation to Berlin Elementary School's playground  fundraiser. Between the bottle drive and Twin City Subaru's donation, we raised over $3,000 for the playground project.

While our donation brought them very close to their goal, they still need your help! The kids need a total of $18,000 to make the new playground happen.  If you would like to donate to the Playground Fundraiser, please mail a check to: Berlin Elementary School, 372 Paine Turnpike N, Berlin, VT 05602. Every dollar makes a difference for local kids!

To see the kids who started the project explain the Playground Fundraiser, watch the Twin City Subaru's Cash for Trash YouTube video:
